Bents - back to business

Man of the moment David Bentley insists we've got to get straight back down to business after the amazing draw at Arsenal with Premier League leaders Liverpool next at the Lane on Saturday.

The Reds travel to N17 for a 5.30pm kick-off sitting proudly at the top of the table thanks to an unbeaten start to the campaign comprising eight wins and two draws from 10 matches.

We remain bottom despite taking four points from two games since Harry Redknapp's arrival - including that fantastic point at the Emirates on Wednesday.

'Bents' kick-started that night to remember with one of the best derby goals of all time - volleying home from full 39 yards - and finished it dancing a jig in front of the Spurs fans after Jermaine Jenas and Aaron Lennon scored twice in the final five minutes to secure a 4-4 draw from 4-2 down.

He later described it as 'the best night of my life' but the midfielder was back at Spurs Lodge the next morning with the rest of his team-mates starting to prepare for Liverpool.

"We have to keep ourselves confident and maintain that high but we also have to be professional," he reflected at the Lodge.

"We now have to go out there and get a result against Liverpool.

"I know that, the lads know that and we now have to get ourselves prepared for another massive game.

"We want three points and we're more than capable of doing that. You can imagine the atmosphere now at the Lane, everyone will be buzzing after Wednesday - I can't wait to get out there.

"But it's about getting the right result and we all know that's what we have to do again."
